Back when BBQ man, Daniel Delaney, first announced the launch of BrisketLab (using the pay-per-pound method, allowing brisket-lovers to pre-order brisket to then be picked up at various pop-up BBQ parties throughout the summer) Underground Eats co-founder, Harris Damashek, made what he thought of as a “conservative” purchase of two pounds of brisket. As summer passed along, one scorching hot day at a time, we continued to hear about these underground brisket parties and how everyone seemed to really be enjoying them.
This week it was finally our turn to cash in on some Texas-style smoked brisket and see what all the fuss was about. On Tuesday night, the Underground Eats crew joined many others at The Woods in Williamsburg to get our brisket on. And what did we discover? 1. Brisket is delicious (ok, so we already knew that). 2. Two pounds is a lot of brisket. 3. Appraently, people really love brisket. 4. Delaney does not disappoint. His brisket was perfectly smoked, tender, and juicy. Good brisket- that’s what all the fuss is about. Browse our photo wrap-up of Tuesday’s BrisketLab event in the above gallery.
Delaney has recently launched the new BrisketTown, allowing carnivores to again purchase brisket by the pound to then be picked up at a set location.
